I have one of these mantles I would like to sell. If you are on Asura and are in need of one send Johnrock a tell. These seems to be a rare or only special interest piece.

Level 30 Subjob Items

There are level 30 Earrings, Shields, Belts and Mantles that all trigger on Latent Effects. These all correspond with a job.
All of them activate via Subjob. Nothing else will trigger these to activate, NOT main job, ONLY subjob.
The newest jobs (Blu, Cor, Pup) do not have these items (as of 7/27/06).
Subjob: Bard        - Singer's    (Earring, Mantle, Shield, Song Belt) 
Subjob: Beastmaster - Trimmer's   (Earring, Mantle,  Aspis, Pick Belt) 
Subjob: Black Mage  - Wizard's    (Earring, Mantle, Shield, Staff Belt) 
Subjob: Dark Knight - Killer      (Earring, Mantle,  Targe, Scythe Belt) 
Subjob: Dragoon     - Wyvern      (Earring, Mantle,  Targe, Lance Belt) 
Subjob: Monk        - Wrestler's  (Earring, Mantle,  Aspis, Cestus Belt) 
Subjob: Ninja       - Genin       (Earring, Mantle,  Aspis, Sarashi) 
Subjob: Paladin     - Esquire's   (Earring, Mantle,  Targe, Shield Belt) 
Subjob: Ranger      - Beater's    (Earring, Mantle,  Aspis, Gun Belt) 
Subjob: Red Mage    - Warlock's   (Earring, Mantle, Shield, Rapier Belt) 
Subjob: Samurai     - Ashigaru    (Earring, Mantle,  Targe, Katana Obi) 
Subjob: Summoner    - Magician's  (Earring, Mantle, Shield, Avatar Belt) 
Subjob: Thief       - Pilferer's  (Earring, Mantle,  Aspis, Dagger Belt) 
Subjob: Warrior     - Mercenary's (Earring, Mantle,  Targe, Axe Belt) 
Subjob: White Mage  - Healer's    (Earring, Mantle, Shield, Mace Belt)

There are other Latent effect items that trigger at different things such as Low HP, <100% tp, a bard song on you, This is NOT one of those items.
The only thing that activates these items is your subjob.

Most level 30 armors with latent effects require a sub job for said lantent effect to activate. This one requires you to be subbing ranger.

I know this latent effect kicks in when you have ranger subbed...but does it activate if you have ranger main?
RE: main?
# Mar 28 2005 at 9:43 AM Rating: Decent
Unfortunately no. The only way the latent effects on all the level 30 latent effect equipment is by using the correct subjob.
# Dec 04 2004 at 6:36 PM Rating: Decent
The level 30 equips with a latent effect are all avtivated by a sub job. The level 50 rings and level 70earrings are the ones that activate when your hp is low.

Some examples...
Warlock's earring= /rdm
Magician's Earring= /smn
Mercenary's Earring = /war
Genin Earring = /nin
Beater's Mantle = /rng
Avatar Belt= /smn
Those are all the ones I know gl

Latent effect triggering

Latent effects on each item trigger differently.

Some require your HP below X%, some want a certain subjob, others need specific status effects (like Blind for the Bat earrings or whatever it is called) to take effect. The item doesnt specify or tell you when this happens, you just have to figure it out yourself.
Latent Effect........
# Oct 03 2004 at 3:59 AM Rating: Decent
Can we please get this straight!!!!!! some are sayin that Latent Effect means you have to have a certain sub-job equiped and some are sayin that it means a effect that kicks in when your hp is low. (example: Drake Ring, Latent Effect: Enhances "Jump" Ability, Lvl 50 DRG) If it means you have to have a certain sub job equiped then why is the latent effect for DRG job and can only be equip'd by DRG, what sub job would you use then and what would be the point of havin that sub job????? so the low HP is sounding a lil more logical. just tryin to get everyone on the same page. Correct me if you feel im wrong.

# Oct 05 2004 at 10:29 PM Rating: Decent
Basicly the items that are exclusive to a certian job like the drake ring you mentiond are activated when your hp reaches a certain point, this point usually being in the oarange/yellow.

Now for the latent effect items that can be used by all jobs like the Beater's Mantle Require you to have a certain sub job.

So both are right but each have different activaters
How do you get one?

Hey guys,
I am so interested in this item, but I can't seem to find it anywhere. I check all AHs and nothing so far. I have seen some sold but none available. Any suggestions? Any help would be appreciated, thanks guys!
RE: How do you get one?

In order to obtain this item, you will need to do Balga's Dais BCNM 30 - Harem Scarem. This includes defeating Nenaunir and Nenaunir's Wives (5 of them). The drops are: Beater's Mantle,
Mannequin Hands, Trimmer's Aspis, Wizard's Shield and Wyvern Targe. Good luck.

how exactly do "Latent Effects" acctually work ??

It depends....

This item is equippable by all jobs. The latent effect kicks in when your Sub Job is RNG.

There are also lvl 40 items that are job specific, such as the Fencer's Ring. It can be equipped by only RDM. The latent effect on this item kicks in when your HP is "low". I've yet to confirm what "color" your HP must be in order to receive the effect.

Latent effects have nothing to do with subjobs.

I don't care where you read that. Go use something with a latent effect and see if you can see when it really activates.

I use Genin earring (latent effect +4 AGI) on my THF/NIN and RNG/NIN. When I equip it the little green +number next to my AGI stat goes up by 4, and when I unequip it it goes down by four. So the anonymous poster saying No, no, no, is being misleading. Just like many people have said , but for some reason not everyone believes - there are different kinds of latent effects activated in different ways. Some RDM swords have latent effects that are activated by NEITHER subjob OR low hp, but rather by using En spells. There are many kinds of latent effects.

People shouldn't post something as fact about something that they don't know about.

Yes yes yes

All the lvl 30 earrings/mantles are sub-job dependant. The Mercenary's Earring (Lat Eff: +4 VIT) is sub War...why do you think so many plds wear it? Warlock earring=sub rdm, wrestler's earring=sub mnk, etc.

This is a pretty damn cool Mantle for lvling up your RNGed skills (Archery, Marksmanship, Throwing). /RNG sub of course.

More shots fired means more DMG, and more Skill ups ^^.

Yes, Rapid Shot works with any ranged weapon, whether it be Markmanship, Archery, or Throwing.

This might be good for a thf/rng

This also has Latent effect: Increases "Rapid Shot" activation rate, according to mysterytour, likely activated by ranger subjob.
very bad
